On Wednesday, October 7, 2020, Bob White, Principal of Masuda Funai’s Immigration Practice Group, led the National Association of International Educator’s (NAFSA’s) New Member Orientation Ring Call. NAFSA hosts these calls once a quarter to introduce new members to the Membership Engagement Committee. As a member of the Committee, Bob White introduced himself and the rest of the Committee to the new members and explained the many offerings available through a NAFSA membership. There are normally about 100 new members who attend these calls.
